Thought this was interesting. Maybe a new Visual C++ Processor Pack will also be released?

Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack Testers Sought
Jul 7 - 11:57 AM ET Microsoft is seeking beta testers for the latest service pack to Visual Studio 6.0. Version 6.0 continues to be updated for compatibility purposes, although Microsoft is pushing its latest Visual Studio .NET 2003 release to developers. "We have made substantial fixes to the 6.0 product since the last service pack, especially with VC++6.0 and VB 6.0," said Visual Studio program manager Tony Pacheco. "We are looking for quality customer feedback."

Important note :

"The Visual C++ 6.0 Processor Pack is not compatible with Visual C++ Service Pack 6. If you install the Visual C++ Service Pack 6 on a machine on which the Processor Pack is already installed, the Processor Pack functionality will become unavailable. Likewise, if you install the Processor Pack on a machine on which the Service Pack 6 is already installed, the Service Pack 6 will no longer function."
